    diver watches with suits / formal occasions

    Hi All,

    What diver watches - 200+m water resistant - would you wear with a suit.

    I personally think the Omega Planet Ocean looks great, see http://www.omegawatches.com/ambassadors/james-bond. I think this will be my next purchase once I've saved up enough. Would wearing the orange bezel version be pushing it?

    Many divers will go with a suit, especially the PO ;) But wait for ulackfocus to chime in. He may have a different thought on the matter. Some will say a nice thin dress watch with strap is more appropriate for office wear / formal wear / suits. But what it comes down to is wearing whatever you like. Sometimes I wear my AT with a suit. Sometimes I wear my GMT / PO with a suit. Its all good!

    Any and all in my opinion! Though, the really thick dive watches 16 + mm or so begin to look a little silly. In my instance, I'll wear my Doxa 1000T with a suit anyday. Something like a Rolex Sub or Omega Seamaster is even better.

    Not to mention serious cuff interference

    Man, how I love this topic! ....not.

    I'm tired of railing on & on about this so I'll make it short. Dive watch for diving, dress watch for dress attire. If a dive watch was meant to be worn with dress clothes it would be called a dress watch instead of a dive watch.

    ....but by all means - please wear your 45 mm x 17 mm stainless steel chunk of macho with your suit. Nobody will say anything - as far as you know. And nobody will think you lack class - at least they won't say it to your face.

    Now let the fun begin! And please don't forget the obligatory 'Bond' argument.

    I work in a firm that requires business attire everyday. There is no such day as casual day.

    I notice every watch I see someone wearing. It's obvious why I do, I love watches and am always curious.

    In all the years I have worked here, I have never once heard anyone mention of point out a watch I was wearing or anyone else was wearing. People just don't see it.

    I posted this in another thread:

    We have a senior manager who is about to make partner who is GOOD. He wears a yellow dialed Seiko SKX on a rubber dive strap. He wear it with everything; casual clothes, business dress, formal dress etc. After 6 years of being at this firm, I can tell you I have never heard a single person mention the watch he is wearing.



    The point being, wear what you want, no one is going to notice.

    Having, or not having, class has absolutely nothing to do with what you wear, and everything to do with how you act. Style, on the other hand, is about what you wear.

    That person that would ridicule what someone else wears might be very stylish, and wear all the right watches with all the right suits, but they have absolutely zero class in my book.
